Senator Dick Durbin Wants Visa-Free Travel To The U.S. By All Filipinos

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is putting his money where his mouth is. Today, the Democrat lawmaker proposed to scrap the visa requirement for all Filipinos who want to travel to the United States and says he will file the appropriate Senate bill shortly.

Earlier, in a tweet expressing his support for the jailed Senator Leila De Lima, Durbin urged Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte “to stop threatening the travel” of Filipino Americans and so many others who travel between the U.S. and other nations.

”To prove that I’m not just all talk, I will sponsor a new Senate bill that would ensure the travel of all Filipinos to the U.S., visa-free. In doing so, I challenge Duterte not to make good his threat to require U.S. citizens to obtain a visa when traveling to the Philippines.  This is all in the spirit of true reciprocity,” Durbin told The Adobo Chronicles.
